So while The Science of Sleep may not, in the end, be terribly deep, it is undoubtedly -- and deeply -- refreshing. Full Review
Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
It's rare for young actors to exude as much charisma and charm as Gainsbourg and Garca Bernal. Full Review
Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
Unlike Gondry's previous features, Human Nature and Eternal Sunshine, Science lacks the sturdy armature of a Charlie Kaufman screenplay to support its eccentricities. The flood of delight in the film's first 90 minutes slowed to a trickle and, finally, a drip. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
The look of the film is dazzling, even hallucinatory, and the concept is beyond quirky as conceived by Gondry, a talented visual stylist, in his first film based on his own script. The story is compelling, unconventional and diverting in its blurring of reality and fantasy. Full Review
Dana Stevens
To me, the movie feels like a small but ingeniously crafted gift. Full Review
